I was being serious, I always appreciate a reply. I know it was worded
oddly, but, yes, just take it at face value, please.
I read multiple suggestions to connect with that approach, the -L switch,
none of the blogs/etc I saw explained why. I suppose they assume that
you know why already so don't say. It's possible I overlooked the
context, but I don't think so.
In and of itself, I'm fine with ssh into the host and then using the mysql
console. Since I'm not running scripts, it's moot whether the connection
is through mysql directly, if that's the correct terminology, or just
I'm interested in how ssh is used by MySQL. While I have a pdf book on
ssh, I don't, at the moment, have the time to just sit down and read it
cover to cover.
In the longer term, I'm considering whether or not to backup a small db,
with cron, master/slave, or replicate it -- or something else. I need to
do some reading on that. I've always done fine with just using mysqldump,
but will probably need some additional tools to use.
I can't really foresee much admin, many scripts to run against the db,
but I suppose there's always something.
Yes, I'm still figuring out the mechanics of ssh. It was more of a ssh
question than a MySQL question, fair enough, pardon about that, but was
within the specific context of MySQL.
